At the 2015 Techno Classica Jaguar was trying to grab some attention between the ubiquitous Porsche, Ferrari and Lamborghini, BMW and Mercedes. The Jaguar booth only featured 3 Jaguars and two Land Rovers (a Defender and one of the first Range Rovers). Honestly I was a bit disappointed by the number of cars (and no XJ present), but the three cars were pristine examples.
The 1975 XJ-S V12 was the first XJ-S and featured a whopping 5.3 litre V12 with 285 hp.Its 0-60 mph (96km/h) in 7.6 seconds made the XJ-S more than able to compete with its Italian rivals. Unfortunately the styling was not well received especially because it was the successor of the widely acclaimed E-Type. But nowadays the XJ-S is slowly gathering a loyal following.
